    Cricket 2018

    Anyone else think that the England fielding should be talked about more? One piece of excellent glovework from Foakes and catching from Jennings already today, to add to Stokes' deeds in the first innings. Leach looking pretty good too.

    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Add talking about women as if they're objects and going on about how tough they are/the world is/"made it by myself" as similar stuff too.

    President Trump & the USA

    TBF a lot of his supporter base either wouldn't care or would actually celebrate Cali burning to the ground.

    What grinds my gears...

    Well yeah, tbh I floated the idea that this was a sneakier way of getting publicity through the Streisand Effect in the OP. Smart.

    Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    It often is and we really don't. But that's a discussion for another time and also one we've had before, I believe. Referring to the days events...what an absolutely Shakespearian farce of a clusterfvck, and it's barely past midday. Were it not for the potential consequences it would be roundly funny.

    President Trump & the USA

    In Senate election update news, a few tight votes have been resolved, two left to go: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46190111 Currently stands at 51-47, so the Repubs could end up either where they started, or one or two seats better, depending on the last two results.

    It's gotten to the stage that when there's a mass shooting etc now all you have to do is see if the perp: - was fatally apprehended - was arrested without being killed/committed suicide by gun when cornered and you can pretty much guess the skin colour of the perp from which one occured.

    TBH you don't even need the accompanying Tweets to be correct there.

    So that would be a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun...only to be thought a bad guy with a gun and being stopped by more good guys with guns even though it turns out he's a good guy with a gun? Is that about right?

    As much as this is true (and yeah, 100 nutters isn't all that much to worry about), I'm still glad it isn't being ignored. The successes of the AFD in Germany, the FN in France, Orban's lot in Hungary, as well as the "alt-right" and their poster boy in the US shows that there might be enough to be worried about elsewhere. I mean, fascism didn't begin with sticking undesirables in the ovens right away last time, did it? Apathy was a key part of that slippery slope that led to it.

    Making a Murderer Part 2

    Vengeance, and closure. They don't care who pays for her murder, so long as someone does. That's pretty often typical of families who have suffered such trauma, I think. A good reason why the justice system has to be impartial with zero input from such parties IMO.

    Here's hoping, though neofascism does seem to be resurfacing in an awful lot of places. Good to see the authorities taking it seriously here, though.
